49ers-Saints: Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates on Richard Sherman, Raheem Mostert, K’Waun Williams, others

Nov 11, 2020 at 2:08 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice and provided several injury updates. The team is preparing to face the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

  • RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) won't play against the Saints. Shanahan hopes to have him back for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams — after the bye.
  • RB Tevin Coleman (knee) won't play either. Shanahan also hopes to have him back for Week 12.
  • LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring) also won't play this weekend.
  • WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) will not practice today. The team will re-evaluate him tomorrow.
  • CB K'Waun Williams (ankle) will be out "for a while." Injured reserve is a possibility (see below).
  • WR Trent Taylor (back) won't practice today.
  • WR Kendrick Bourne remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
  • CB Richard Sherman (calf) will practice for the first time since before Week 1.

Today, the 49ers placed safety Jaquiski Tartt on injured reserve due to a turf toe injury.

Shanahan was asked if injured reserve was being considered for Williams, who is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. There is just one problem. The cornerback has already been on injured reserve once this season.

"We don't know yet because he can't go on IR-to-return twice," Shanahan explained. "So he already had that once in the year, so we're trying to evaluate, see how he goes. It's a high-ankle sprain, so that's usually four to six weeks, which will lead him up towards the end of the year. We're not going to put him on if he can't come back because once we do put him on, he can't (return).

"We're just trying to wait that out and see how he reacts here over the next week or so, and to see what our options are with the rest of our roster."

Regarding Sherman, Shanahan hopes to have his veteran cornerback back in time for Week 12 against the Rams.

"I know Doctor Sherm thinks he's got a chance this week," Shanahan added. "And I've been around him enough that that's why I don't count him out on that. But my goal is hopefully to get him back by the Rams. But I won't rule him out for anything because of what his prognosis is."

Richard Sherman 'ecstatic' about idea of returning to 49ers

Richard Sherman seemingly spent the last month of the 2020 season with one foot out the door of the San Francisco 49ers building. He knew he was not returning, mostly due to the team's salary-cap situation, and would hit free agency. Sherman remains unsigned and recently said he hasn't ruled out a return to the Bay Area team. Although, he didn't expect any movement in the free-agent cornerback market until after the draft. With the 2021 NFL Draft in the books, Sherman's perspective has changed a bit. He sounds like he would gladly welcome a return to the 49ers, the team with which he spent the last three seasons. "There's always a chance it could end up



Richard Sherman weighs in on 49ers having Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance

By David Bonilla

One of the many reasons the San Francisco 49ers were appealing to Richard Sherman when the veteran cornerback signed with the team in 2018 was Jimmy Garoppolo. The quarterback was coming off an impressive five-game run after being traded from the New England Patriots, and the 49ers had just re-signed him to a long-term deal. It looked like the team had solidified its quarterback position. Three years later, Garoppolo's eventual replacement is on the roster. Recent injury-plagued seasons forced San Francisco to plan for the future — post-Garoppolo. Last week, the team drafted Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick. Garoppolo remains on the roster and is part of the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season. He will be the team's starting quarterback, allowing

On Wednesday, Richard Sherman told ESPN's Max Kellerman and Molly Qerim Rose that returning to the San Francisco 49ers remains a possibility. He also mentioned the Seattle Seahawks as a potential option. "There's always a chance it could end up working back in the Bay, and I head back that way," Sherman said on ESPN's First Take. "That's another place I'm really comfortable going. Obviously, I know the staff, know the team well. Just spent time there and would be ecstatic if something happened there." Sherman added that he doesn't believe anything is imminent, and a signing may not even happen until after the regular season begins, if at
